It's not responding to my answer, though it seems to be correct

It says I forgot to add column-rule-color, but it is there.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.main {
  -webkit-column-count: 2;
  -webkit-column-gap: 2.5em;
  -webkit-column-rule-width: 1px;
  -webkit-column-rule-style: dotted;
  -webkit-column-rule-color: red;

h1 {

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Multi-column Layout</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="main">
        <h1>A Lesson on Multi-Column Layout!</h1>

It works with a shorthand.

  -webkit-column-rule: 1px dotted red;
